By Shavonne Walker
A Salisbury man was left with a broken nose after an acquaintance robbed him and hit him in the face with a handgun, police officials said.
John Wayne Gray told authorities he was at his home, in the 200 block of Craver Avenue, on Sunday hanging out with some friends when one of them told him a man outside wanted to speak with him. Gray, 43, said the man, Brian Oglesby, was an acquaintance.
Police said Gray was asked to go outside to look at the tires on a vehicle parked outside.
He told police Oglesby came up behind him, robbed him and struck him with a gun. Gray’s girlfriend said she saw Oglesby standing over Gray, a report said.
Brian Shondale Oglesby, 36, was charged with assault with a deadly weapon and robbery with a dangerous weapon. Rowan County authorities served an arrest warrant for Oglesby on Wednesday.
Oglesby was convicted of assault on a female, assault with a deadly, resisting arrest, possession with intent to sell a controlled substance, and assault by pointing a gun. He was involved in shootings in both 2009 and 2012. In 2009, he was shot while attending a party at a Tabernacle Street home, and in 2012 he was one of two people shot after an argument at a West Fisher Street home.
